There is some confusion about a recent email announcement. A new update to tubeCore was released which, according to the email, “Discontinued use of Hulu as a source for TV Show and other content images”.
This was apparently an unfortunate wording choice. The change is an enhancement to give users a better experience with Media Servers that provide images with the content they present.
The Hulu channel within PlayOn was not removed.
Hulu was used as a source for TV Show images, meaning that when tubeCore needed to display an image that represents a TV Show it would request that image from hulu.com. tubeCore was modified to display the TV Show image from the Media Server (such as PlayOn).
Hulu is still available as a content channel within PlayOn.
